I kept seeing ads for the new What’s in the Bible? series, but I didn’t really give it much thought. It was when I started reading rave reviews on trusted blogs that my interest level rose a bit. I jumped at the chance to review Volume1!
What’s in the Bible? is created by Phil Vischer, of Veggie Tales fame. Unlike the silly Veggie Tales stories, this series walks through the Bible and shows how all of the characters fit together into one redemptive story.
Make no mistake, this series is ridiculous..and we loved it!
This is pretty much how it went the night we watched: An odd little character would appear onscreen and sing an odd little song – -we would look at each other with eyebrows raised, saying phrases like “What in the world?” and “That is so bizarre!” – - then, after a moment of silence, we would burst out laughing!!
All silliness aside, the kids were actually learning something…important things! I even learned a thing or two about church history.
The What’s in the Bible? site has lots of great activities:
Some of the viewpoints on free will didn’t really mesh with what we teach, but we used it as a conversation starter to reinforce what and why we believe.
We liked them so much that I bought the whole series. And since they go along with the free Bible Roadtrip study that we are doing, I can justify the cost as part of our curriculum budget. ;)
Speaking of cost, I have a 20% off coupon code to share with you, with free shipping on orders over $15!
Have fun learning your Bible!!
